The Tampa Bay Rays did God’s work: eliminating those cheating-ass, sub-.500 Houston Astros over the weekend and preventing them from reaching the World Series.
Thank. You. Lord.
I also like the Rays’ pitching, timely hitting and straight up moxy. They’ve been the beasts in the AL East since mid-restart, which happened to coincide with my Yankees’ injuries piling up all over the place. Really though, the Rays dominated my Yankees throughout the regular season, and manned up against them in the American League Divisional Series.
The Los Angeles Dodgers managed to play a team that could out-choke them when the stake are at their highest. They rallied from a 3-1 series deficit to stun the Atlanta Braves last night. Will the Dodgers FINALLY live up to their stellar regular season performance and cash in a World Series title?
Believe it or not, this is the first World Series where both teams come with the best records from their respective leagues in recent memory. As strong as the Dodgers are in both pitching and hitting, they constantly come up small in the postseason. And until L.A. proves otherwise…
